PROTECT OREGONIANS FROM LOSING POWER
On February 23rd, the PUC is voting on whether or not to extend the utility shut-off moratorium beyond April 1st, 2021. It’s up to all of us to speak out and demand that this critical protection is extended. COVID-19 is still impacting people across Oregon, especially low-income, Black, Indigenous, and communities of color.
DEMAND JUSTICE FOR AIDAN ELLISON
On November 23, Aidan Ellison, a Black teenager, was ruthelessly murdered by a white man while listening to music in his car in Ashland, Oregon. Aidan should still be alive today and we must demand justice for his murder.
Black lives matter. Please follow our partners at the Southern Oregon Coalition for Racial Equity for more updates and opportunities to demand justice.
JOIN THE OREGON CLEAN ENERGY OPPORTUNITY CAMPAIGN
2020 has been a hard year for Oregon, especially for those who are struggling to pay their bills, dealing with the impacts of devastating wildfires, and who have lost income due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
That’s why a coalition of frontline leaders from across the state and their allies are launching the Oregon Clean Energy Opportunity campaign to reduce energy bills, support home upgrades that help keep families healthy, and create good jobs by transitioning to 100% renewable energy by 2035.
ROGUE VALLEY RELIEF FUND
This is a new fund that we’ve launched in partnership with the Mackenzie River Gathering Foundation and other organizations in the Rogue Valley to support urgent needs in Southern Oregon. Already, this fund has gotten thousands of dollars into the hands of community members impacted by these fires.
Thank Sen. Merkley and Sen. Wyden for taking action for #NoLNG
Senator Merkley and Senator Wyden have introduced two bills that limit the fossil fuel industry’s power to use eminent domain to build fracked gas pipelines. Can you send them a quick note today to thank them for standing with our communities to stop Jordan Cove LNG?
JOIN THE CAMPAIGN TO STOP JORDAN COVE LNG.
A Canadian fossil fuel corporation, Pembina, is proposing to build the 230-mile long, 36-inch wide Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline through southwestern Oregon to the proposed Jordan Cove liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon. Communities are coming together to make sure this never happens.
